How is increase the power of eyes in home with out any exercise? I suffer from metropiya.
There is no medication or food for improving eyesight or to get rid of glasses. If not interested in glasses then you can try a. Contact lens b. Lasik laser as your age is now 18 years so your number will not increase now whether you wear glasses or not as number becomes stable at age of 18-20 yrs. Having said that I advise you to eat balanced diet including green vegetables and seasonal fruits for keeping eyes and body healthy. If you are not comfortable with contact lens then go for lasik. Lasik is a very easy and painless procedure. If you want to get rid of glasses then go for lasik.

I have red eyea for 15days. What should I do pls help eyes are paining and watering.
Wash with plain cold water, apply cold packs to closed eyes, take a short period of rest, get adequate sleep, - these measures usually relieve most types of simple red eyes. If pain and watering is severe or unbearable, then it probably indicates a serious condition which needs an ophthalmologist consultation immediately. You also need urgent consultation if vision is also disturbed.

Eye redness is most often due to swollen or dilated blood vessels. This makes the surface of the eye look red. There are many causes of a red eye or eyes like infection, allergy. Foreign body in eyes. Some are medical emergencies and some are a cause for concern, but not an emergency. Others are nothing to worry about. Consult your local eye specilist to see what is the cause.
